Home based collection

AlburyCity does not conduct a kerbside hard waste collection service, rather it issues residents with four vouchers for entry to the Albury Waste Management Centre each year.

Residents facing hardship that have no capacity to deliver their household general waste to the Albury Waste Management Centre may be eligible for a a home-based collection service. To find out your eligibility, please contact Council's Customer Service on 6023 8111.
